There are only three things in life that are of certainty: death, taxes and that your children will embarrass you. The first two are, of course, merely an inconvenience in comparison to the latter.
Take this week for example, when Mr Hoppo Bumpo and I chanced upon a Discovery Channel production called Dirty Jobs.
If you are not familiar with this series, each program looks at a difficult or messy occupation. This week's episode involved mud and sludge and dredging trucks: just the thing that we suspected small boys would enjoy. We taped the episode, saving it to our computer hard drive, for future viewing with Argy and Bargy. And as we expected, the boys adored it.
In fact Bargy loved it so much, that he went to kindergarten and told his teacher all about it. Yes he did: I went into my dad's study. And I watched a dirty video on the computer.
See? Give me taxes any day.
